Yuzu is very familiar to Japanese people. The essential oil is extracted from the peel of the citron.
In Japan, there is an ancient custom of taking a yuzu bath on the winter solstice to avoid catching a cold. This can be said to be an ancient Japanese form of aromatherapy, as the Japanese knew that the aromatic components of yuzu can stimulate blood circulation and metabolism, and warm the body. Yuzu is said to ward off evil spirits and prevent wind. Yuzu-yu is one of the most popular seasonal events in Japan.
It is also expected to relieve fatigue and provide skin care effects with vitamin C.
Its refreshing and gentle fragrance relaxes the body and mind, uplifts the mood when depressed or stressed, and calms irritated feelings.
Recognized as “Yuzu” in Europe and the United States, it is gaining popularity.
The 18 Days of Yuzu essential oil is carefully extracted from Kochi Prefecture, the largest producer of yuzu in Japan. The essential oil is collected by steam distillation and is non-phototoxic, making it safe to use in skin treatments and baths.
